Live the high life with a high price in the Premium Edition of Cities: Skylines

by Neil Watton (neil363)November 14, 2017

City management titles aren’t exactly commonplace on Xbox One, but one option you do have is to head on down to the big smoke with Cities: Skylines. And today, Skylines has got itself some all new content alongside a Premium Edition – but you’ll need a fair old whack of spare cash for utter enjoyment to be able to take hold.

Following up on the April 2017 release of Cities: Skylines from Paradox Interactive is the Premium Edition of the game. This obviously drops in the base game that we already know and love, plus the full Season Pass. Pricing comes in at £49.99 for the Premium Edition and £31.99 for the standalone Season Pass, which, quite frankly seems rather high, especially as you’ll have been requested to drop that amount previously for the base game.

But then, that Season Pass does promise a whole ton of content, with the Snowfall expansion now taking hold. Also expect to see, new radio stations, an Art Deco content creator pack, the chance to take in some High Tech buildings and a couple more expansions – Natural Disasters and Mass Transit.

When those turn up is anyone’s guess, as for now it seems like the addition of Snowfall is all that is available – we’ll have a full review of that pretty soon. Should you be a city boy or girl though, and enjoy the madness of juggling the well-being of your citizens with making loads of moolah, then you should really be checking our Cities: Skylines once more. Our full review will tell you more whilst the Microsoft Store holds the key to all your purchasing power.

About The Author
Neil Watton (neil363)
An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One. A massive racing fan, Forza 4 was the daddy of all Xbox titles but Forza Horizon 3 now trumps that. Online first person shooters are my hell....probably because my reactions are so poor, but give me a little Indie title and I'll be in heaven. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
